Oakland Raiders

Cautiously Optomistic

on a side note, a Raider fan posted a comment on a raiders.com article that I thought was worth repeating....Manning better brace himself as he is about to get run over by a Mack Tuck!  (May 10, 2014 | post #2)

Oakland Raiders

Cautiously Optomistic

I really like most of the off season moves. and the first 3 rounds of the draft have been good. That said, we are in a tough division and have a brutal schedule(based on last years results). The schedule may not be as bad, as some teams lost some big players. So far the draft pick I am most unsure about is Carr. He looks good on paper, but given they likely picked up Schaub to start(and could start for 3 or 4 seasons) and we have McGloin, which in my opinion would have had a much better season had he had a preseason to gel with the team as a starter. So I think he is a capable back up. I like the competition piece of bringing Carr in, but I can't help but think we could have picked up a db or a lineman....Not saying it was a mistake, because only time will tell that story. But I am encouraged by the overall off season and draft so far. If we can gel quickly and stay healthy we have a got shot at a winning record.  (May 10, 2014 | post #1)

Can we all at least agree on this?

A top 5 pick SHOULD be a QB. But there is not a QB worthy of a top 5 pick. Manziel has bust written all over him and Bortles has the tools but needs work...again not worthy of a top 5 pick  (Apr 14, 2014 | post #5)

Finally some common sense...no overrated QB's in the Top 5!!!!! I would be happy with any 5 stated. I don't think any of the QB's are top 5 pick worthy, and if we did get any of the QB's it would be a white knuckle grab on the oh Sh$t bar!!!  (Apr 13, 2014 | post #2)

Moves the Oakland Raiders Will Regret Not Making This Off...

What a dumb article. Again proving the bleacherreport is a lousy source for information. I would have liked resigning Houston and Veldheer. But I won't look at it with regret.(for my Raiders) Houston only had 4 sacks...Tuck had 11. How many players last season had 4sacks? If Houston has a banner season, whose to say it's not because of the defense they run in chicago? or maybe he connects better with the coaching? That is not fault of player or coaches. Sometimes you connect with a coach better...that's it. Veldheer was hurt most of last season and wasn't back to form, but again, I don't like it was a downgrade. Bottom line is We have a better team this year on paper...we will know how we look, week 8.  (Apr 10, 2014 | post #2)

Does Manziel fit new Raiders paradigm?

Hype doesn't make you best player available.  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #6)

Sure it does, But I don't think Manziel is best player available  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #5)

Does Manziel fit new Raiders paradigm?

Fair assessment. I Know I have said no on Manziel. Truth told I want anyone who can help make us a winner for years to come. I agree will Paul Guiterrez, That it doesn't make sense since Schaub and Manziel have different skill sets and the first INT Schaub throws, Fans will be screaming for Manziel. That cripples both Schaub and the coaches. Not smart to say the least. Unless they Don't mind wasting the contract with Schaub if Manziel becomes the starter.  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #1)

You bring up a valid point, we need more depth at CB. That should take top priority. After first round  (Apr 7, 2014 | post #28)

Just say No to Manziel!!!! Has bust written all over him. Same with Bridgewater. My hope is we either get Watkins at 5 or trade up for Clowney(which i doubt we do) or trade down for more picks.  (Apr 6, 2014 | post #22)

Only reason I doubt we get Watkins at 5 is I saw that no one from the Raiders went to watch his pro day....maybe the article I saw was wrong..but if true...it would lead me to believe they aren't looking at him.  (Apr 3, 2014 | post #11)
